Is it the same way as all other windows systems? On this particular ASUS computer I was troubleshooting F8 and Shift-F8 on Boot did not work. I'm thinking it's because of the computer model but not sure.

Check the tutorials on this site unless someone answers your question.It is the F8 key on my Asus but you have to make a change to be able to boot into safe mode.

How to enable the F8 key to start Safe Mode in Windows 8

There is another way to Start in safe mode but it's requires going all around the houses first on this HP laptop. I didn't take note last time I did it. :)

Having taken notes, here is my procedure for booting into safe mode on a Windows 8.1 HP laptop:

 

  1. Settings >
  2. Change PC Settings >
  3. Change Advanced start-up options >
  4. Restart now >
  5. Troubleshoot >
  6. Advanced options >
  7. Start-up Settings >
  8. Restart >
  9. Choose option 4: Enable Safe Mode

 

The method linked in my previous post is looking a lot simpler.
